Episode 3 Summary
- If our worldview does not include God, we will have to decide on our own what should be true about gender and sexuality

Crash wrote, “Your good will didn’t end my suffering, it increased it… your kindness led to more scars, not less.” Why do you think Crash and others don’t find the fulfillment they’re looking for in a “sex change”?
How else have you seen kindness lead to scars, either physically, emotionally, or spiritually? Has getting something you wanted ever actually hurt you in the long run? Share that story.

1 John 4:2
In 1 John 4:2, it says, “This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God”. This verse was written to reject the heresy of Gnosticism, which said that the body is bad and wrong, and only spiritual things are good. Do you see any similarities between gnosticism and transgenderism? How does that fact that Jesus affirmed being given a body change the discussion?
